Triathlon in SalzburgerLand

Perfect conditions and international thriathlon competitons in SalzburgerLand

The Triathlon is certainly one of the most demanding and athletic sports that one can do. Not only because it demands constant top performance in three different sports, it is also about overcoming one’s own lack of willpower. And after cycling and swimming, it can seem unbelievably hard with the running. However, once you cross the finish line, there is nothing better than to have overcome your limits once again. Welcome to the TriathlonLand of Salzburg!

In recent years, SalzburgerLand has developed into a real triathlon stronghold. Here, there are not only some of the best competitions for far and wide, but also the perfect training conditions in all three sports. Because, where else can you find the ideal conditions for running, cycling and swimming in a relatively compact space?

No wonder, then, that not only are the best events here through the lakes, valleys and mountains, but also some of the sport’s top athletes call SalzburgerLand their home. But, of course the sport would not be much without the right infrastructure. You will find here not only perfect training facilities, but also hotels and guest-houses which specialise in looking after triathlon guests. There are restaurants with menus specifically tailored to the needs of triathletes and you will also enjoy all the facilities that are required for training and competition success.

In this sense: grab your road bike, running shoes and swimming gear, and experience in SalzburgerLand a triathlon season which is second to none.

Wolfgangsee Challenge

The Wolfgangsee Challenge is one of the most challenging competitions of the entire season and demands everything from its participants. This race takes place in the beautiful area around the Wolfgangsee Lake. The event consists of a Sprint distance and a Olympic distance triathlon as well as a kid-aquathlon.

Trimotion Saalfelden

This triathlon in Saalfelden is an incredibly popular event with participants and spectators alike. This is partly as a result of the breath-taking route which takes in almost unbroken spectacular views of the Alps. But also the programme of the events ensures that satisfaction for everyone, and every year brings about its new challenges.  This sport is definitely integral to this area.
